LETTER GRADES

Students in Grades 8 and 9 will be reported on a four-point proficiency scale: Emerging, Developing, Proficient, and Extending. Letter grades will be assigned at the completion of each course for students in Grades 10 – 12. Letter grades are based on the provincially accepted scale:

86 – 100%        A          Excellent

73 –   85%        B          Very Good

67 –   72%        C+        Good

60 –   66%        C          Acceptable

50 –   59%        C-         Minimally Acceptable

I           In Progress

SG       Standing Granted

RM       Requirement Met

F          Failed

W         Withdrawal

Where an In Progress (I) letter grade is assigned in a student progress report, it will be accompanied by written comments describing:

  • The areas in which the student requires further attention or development
  • The requirements that need to be fulfilled in relation to the expected learning outcomes
  • A time period for completion of the requirements and a review and evaluation of the student’s performance

Appeal of Final Letter Grades

Students wishing to appeal an assigned final letter grade should discuss the evaluation with the teacher first. If still unsatisfied and wishing to pursue the concern further, students should see their advisor for assistance in initiating the appeal process.

Challenge

There is a district process to challenge courses. If students feel that the appropriate learning outcomes for a Grade 10-12 course have been accomplished elsewhere, they may initiate the challenge process. See the Principal for further details.

TRANSCRIPT OF GRADES

A Transcript of Grades is forwarded by the Ministry of Education to graduating students in August. Dogwood Diplomas certifying that all graduation requirements have been met are made available for graduates in September. Transcripts are available online from the Ministry of Education website.
